    As they did older Atoms with PowerVR graphics but they're moving to their own graphics across the board so in 2016-2017 we should probably see only Intel graphics in all Atoms ( including those...

    it's C++ and QML

    Ubuntu Phone and Sailfish both needs apps written in QML, Qt and C++. There might be other wrapper for stuff like Java but I wouldn't count on it right now. You might get some C and GTK working but...
